recording an aiff with multiple tracks?

Jan 03 2011 | 2:05 pm

I’ve been trying to make a recording with sfrecord~ with att 4, to let me record an aiff file with four channel inputs. I’d hoped this would give me a recording with 4 mono tracks but instead it gives me 2 stereo tracks, albeit with the right four mics in each four seperate channels. Does anyone know how to turn it around to 4 mono tracks? Or any other way that sfrecord to make it so? Maybe I can pan them somehow? Thanks!

do you mean, that you get two stereo tracks in you DAW/audio-editor ?
if that’s so, it’s probably not max’s fault. AFAIK, there’s no info in .aiff about the "channel interpretation" – only simply the number of channels.

but as a workaround you could convert the multichannel .aiff into multiple mono files (with sox, audacity, whatever…).

I did exactly that. Thank you!
